When building normal template, we add a meta-package called qubes-vm-recommended which is responsible to pull above dependencies and notably qubes-core-agent-dom0-updates, which itself requires yum and yum-util. You can safely remove it if you don't use debian template as "UpdateVM" in Qubes global preferences. > B) Is it safe to allow these to be autoremoved? > > I'm guessing that it is ok to remove the former (A: yes) and not ok to remove > the latter (B: no). > > I've noticed that installing qubes-vm-recommended brings yum and yum-utils > along with it.
